Join Black Cube & ArtPlant on Jan. 17-20 for a symposium on artist-run spaces. 

Taking its cue from recent shifts in Denver's creative landscape, with new artist-run spaces opening (such as Minerva Projects) and the closing of many well-respected venues (such as Leisure), this symposium will address the various trajectories of artist-run spaces alongside their evolving communities.

Tiger Strikes Asteroid Philadelphia, New York, LA, and Chicago

Tiger Strikes Asteroid

is a network of artist-run spaces with locations in Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. They seek to empower the artist’s role beyond that of studio practitioner to include the roles of curator, critic, and community developer; and to act as an alternate model to the conventions of the current commercial art market.

Good Weather is a contemporary art gallery located in a single-car garage in Little Rock, Arkansas. Haynes Riley, the founder, director, and curator for the gallery will be joining us for the symposium. While at Good Weather, Riley has organized nearly 30 solo exhibitions and participated in NADA New York, Material Art Fair, and ARTBandini Los Angeles.
